Chainsaws are fantastic tools for felling trees, trimming trees and maintaining bushes. Specialized chainsaws with diamond teeth can also be used for cutting concrete and other building materials. The best chainsaw for you will depend on the nature of the job you need it for.
Chainsaws may be either gas or electric. Electric chainsaws are and easy to start and maintain, but gas chainsaws are more powerful. Gas chainsaws are best for felling trees and larger trimming projects, while electric chainsaws are good choices for trimming and felling light bushes and smaller trees.
You can only cut wood that's smaller than the bar length of your chainsaw, which is the distance from the base of the chainsaw to the tip of the cutting surface. Before choosing a chainsaw, estimate the thickness of the largest piece of wood you might cut and add a few inches to find the appropriate bar length.
Chainsaw teeth may be chiseled or semi-chiseled. Chiseled teeth are sharper and cut through soft wood well, but semi-chiseled teeth don't wear out easily and are a good choice if you'll be cutting large amounts of hardwood.
